D L Richardson's street team promo buttons

I have discovered something new. Pixlr. I've no idea what it is, but I will of course Google it right now and find out how a street team member made some wonderful promotional buttons for me.

Right, now that I've disappeared for a few seconds and Googled Pixlr, I've discovered it is a free online image editor space. What inspired me to check out Pixlr? One of my "An Ex-Muso's Street Team" members created promo buttons as part of her street team promo. I love them.

Pixlr looks simple to use, even a novice like me should be able to create promo buttons. In the meantime, I'll share with you the images created by Ashley. 

The designer of these buttons is Ashley. She runs a blog called Book Marks The Spot. She is often called "Ryan" though you'll have to read her blog to find out why.

For her efforts, Ashley will receive a little gift in the mail shortly. If you'd like to join "An Ex-Muso's Street Team" and earn little rewards for your promo efforts, check out the below.

About street teams:
The street team is a phenomenon rooted in the music world, where fans are so committed that for nothing more than the love of the band they will gladly do the grassroots marketing that big companies have to pay even bigger money for – leveraging social media, word of mouth “advertising”, postering or even the mundane chores of helping the band set up or sell tickets. The pay-back is being in the trusted inner circle for a beloved band.​

About "An Ex-Muso's Street Team":
For a very long time I sang in a choir or in front of a band. When I left school, I helped form a rock band and I played bass and sang lead vocals. That is, until I decided, at 26, I decided I wanted to be a writer. Writing is the fire in my belly, it gets me up each day and keeps me moving, but music never leaves a person.​ In some ways I'll always consider myself an ex-muso

Why a street team?:
As an indie author, I get access to promotion I wouldn't normally.  As a street team member you get access to an author you wouldn't normally.

Latest news! I've signed up to write a post-apoc series

When I started writing, I had one set goal: to become a prolific author. At the time I was into reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and I wanted to write books, lots of them.  Now I have that chance. After writing, publishing, and promoting 10 books, I've signed up to to write a series of post-apocalyptic fiction books for  Mission Critical Publishing. The reason I signed up was simple. They're innovative. The publishing industry today is fast and fluid.  I've agreed to write 3 books in 6 months. Each book will be around 60,000 words when completed. I'll need to become a writing machine. To accomplish this I'll need to do  2 things: #1 Write fast The only way for me to write fast is to write an overview of the entire book (or series). This can be one page per book. Then I write dots points that become the chapters. Complications, conflicts, solutions, all fit into these chapters. Then I set a daily word count. I'm

Science fiction predicts...

It started out as a discussion group on Amazon. "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" I asked this question and received so many great recommendations for books to read. Why did I ask this question in the first place? Because I'm writing two different sci-fi apocalyptic novels at the moment, and I really wanted to know that I had an audience. A writer's worst nightmare is to write a book that nobody wants to read. Yet, often its a case of nobody being able to find your book in the highway jam that is the internet. THE VIRTUAL WATER COOLER Everyone will tell you that word of mouth is still the best way to sell a book. The industry is clogged with books. Just like the highway, the jam is full of good cars and bad cars, and the online book industry is the same. Asking a question like "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" on an Amazon discussion group was the best way for me to get a list of books to purchase. This is the word of mouth that advertis
